I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me. Once when we were sitting at the 36 of a swimming pool by reminiscing(回忆) the past, she filled her 37 with some water and held it before me, saying, “ You see this water carefully 38 on my hand? It symbolizes love.”
This was how I 39 it: As long as you keep your hand open and allow it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you try to 40 your hand and try to possess(占有，控制) it, it will run out through the fingers. This is the greatest 41 that sometimes people make when they meet love… they try to possess it, they 42 …and just like the water running out of your hand, love will leave you. For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its 43 ．If there are people you love, allow them to be free. Give and don’t expect. Advise, but don’t order. Ask, but 44 demand. It might sound 45 , but it’s a lesson that may take a lifetime to truly practice. It is the secret of true love, in which I’m barely 46 it! Well it is just a piece of advice but it helps a lot.

The composing career (作曲生涯) of Albert Roussel got off to a changeable start, and received one of its biggest successes from a lie. Roussel became an orphan (孤儿) at the age of eight and went to live with his grandfather. He built on the music he had learned from his mother, entertaining himself by reading through the family music collection and playing operatic selections and popular songs on the piano. Three years later Roussel’s grandfather died, and his mother's sister took him in. Her husband arranged for young Albert to take piano lessons. Summer vacations at a Belgian seaside added a second love to his life — the sea. He studied to be a soldier in the navy, but still made time to study music. In the French Navy, he and two friends found time to play the music of Beethoven and other composers. Roussel also began composing. At the Church of the Trinity in Cherbourg on Christmas Day 1892, he had his first public appearance as a composer. That success encouraged Roussel to write a wedding march, and one of his fellow naval officers offered to show it to a famous conductor, Edouard Colonne. When Roussel’s friend returned with the manuscript (手稿), he reported that Colonne had advised Roussel to give up his naval career and devote his life to music. Not long afterward, at the age of 25, Roussel did just that. He applied the qualities that he had developed in the navy to his composing and became a major force in twentieth century French music. As for Edouard Colonne’s inspiring advice that Roussel should devote his life to music, Roussel's naval friend later admitted that he had made it up and that he had never even shown Roussel’s manuscript to the conductor. 60. What information can we get from the second paragraph? A. Albert’s grandfather died when Albert was eight years old. B. Albert's aunt arranged for him to take piano lessons. C. Albert gave up studying music after he studied to be a soldier in the navy. D. Albert came to love the sea after summer vacations at the seaside. 61. From the third paragraph we know that ______. A. In the French Navy, Roussel and two friend began composing. B. Roussel’s first public appearance at the church was successful. C. Roussel showed the wedding march to Edouard. D. Edouard Colonne advised Roussel to devote his life to naval career. 62. Which of the following is true according to the text? A. The composing career of Roussel started stably. B. Roussel learned basic music knowledge from his aunt. C. A white lie helped Roussel achieve success. D. Roussel was cheated and hurt by his naval friend. 63. Who told a lie according to the text? A. Roussel’s grandfather. B. Albert’s naval friend. C. Roussel's aunt. D. Edouard Colonne.
